Vivo Electronics, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer, has officially released its new mobile phone, the Vivo Y51L, in India yesterday on January 28, 2016 at the cost of Rs. 11,980.
Up to this point, the difference between the new Y51L and its predecessor, Y51 is not clear. But what is worth mentioning here is the fact that the new Y51L comes with Android 5.0.2 out-of-the-box.
The Y51L is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB Internal Storage, which can be expanded (up to 128 GB) using a MicroSD Card. The handset packs an accelerometer, gravity sensor, ambient light sensor, proximity sensor, and digital compass. The smartphone sports a glass back cover.
It comes with a 5-inch (960 × 540 pixel resolution) TFT display. The Vivo Y51L sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Additional features include Night mode, HDR, Panorama and Face Beauty modes.
The new smartphone is available in two colors, Black and White, weights approximately 157 grams and is backed by a 2350 mAh Li-Ion battery.
Vivo kept the dual-SIM feature in its new phone with the support of Indian 4G LTE bands (2300 MHz and 1800 MHz) along with GPS, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth V4.0, and Micro-USB v2.0 connectivity options.
“The Indian smartphone market is tech savvy and price sensitive. The affordable segment is the growth driver, as the young generation today looks for a phone which is best in features, beautiful in design and is priced competitively. Last year, we witnessed huge sales and positive demand for products in the budget range across markets, which boosted us to launch the Y51L. The new launch will further strengthen our hold on the market and help us establish ourselves among our consumers.” Alex Feng, CEO, Vivo India & CMO, Vivo Global
